Many successful programmers know more than just a computer language. They also know how to think about solving problems. They use "computational thinking": breaking a problem down into segments that lend themselves to technical solutions. Code Clinic is a series of six courses where authors solve the same problems using different programming languages. Here, Kevin Skoglund works with Ruby.

Kevin introduces challenges and provides an overview of his solutions in Ruby. Challenges include topics such as statistical analysis, searching directories for images, and accessing peripheral devices.

Visit other courses in the series to see how to solve the exact same challenges in languages like C#, C++, Java, PHP, and Python.
